AMC Orders Arm-Wrestling Reality Show, Renews 'Small Town Security'
The cable network broadens its unscripted roster with "King of Arms," from the producers of "Deadliest Catch."
AMC is bolstering its unscripted catalog with a third run of Small Town Security and a new reality series from the producers of Deadliest Catch.
King of Arms, a look at the niche world of competitive arm wrestling, will debut in early 2013 with a 10-episode season. The hourlong program, from Emmy-winning Deadliest Catch producers Matt Renner and Ethan Prochnik as well as Undertow Films' Dan Ilani, will focus of five different wrestling clubs across the U.S. (Production will be in Baton Rouge, La.; New York City; Erie, Pa.; Sacramento, Calif.; and Kansas City, Mo.)
It will join Small Town Security and Freakshow on the growing roster of unscripted programming -- the latter two returning to the schedule later in 2014.
"King of Arms, Small Town Security and Freakshow all take viewers inside worlds most have never seen, populated by unique and unforgettable characters," said AMC executive vp original programming, production and digital content Joel Stillerman. "We are looking forward to bringing these new and returning series to AMC viewers and are very excited to be working with Undertow Films on our new unscripted original, King of Arms."
Small Town Security is executive produced by Ken Druckerman and Banks Tarver of Left/Right Films.
